    Probably the correct choice bro. I just have a feeling this is one of those sour deals. The seller has been selling cheap crap to build up his or her rep and then hit a ton of people for a shit load of money and disappear.


    ES chips, or Engineering Samples, are actually the property of Intel. Intel "loans" these chips out and if the person sells said ES chip it is then considered theft according to Intel's rules. LOL, even though millions of these are and have been sold.
    I currently have a Xeon W3520 that is a damn ES chip. Purchased a motherboard and chip over a year ago and it was in the board. Sucks because legally a person can't even sell it.

    Today I hit a personal milestone.

    It seems like yesterday when I got aboard almost a year ago for the WCG February Challenge, barely scrapping the bottom of the top 30. A few weeks of pie envy (the only good type of envy) and several hundreds of dollars worth of computer parts later I finally managed to get on the pie (I'll always have page 287). I never thought I'd stick around for as long as I have, I initially entered the challenge by the lure of free games (thanks again for Tomb Raider, manofthem :toast:) but somehow this has kept me thoroughly engaged, always looking for ways to increase my ppd and power efficiency. It's extremely fun :D.

    Thanks to our captain Norton for keeping us posted on the team's activities, Ion for inspiring us with his monstrous ppd (don't worry Vinska is holding us up, and thanks for those beautiful images on Daily Nunmbers) and of course to Chicken Patty (more like a three egg omelette :pimp: ) for giving us this wonderful group :clap: :clap: :clap: You'll always be our captain :respect:

    Without further ado:

    I'll fire up the QX6800 and i5-2320 on thursday so that they're all spooled up by saturday. I'm actually kind of curious about the QX6800 performance with MMC since it seems that FPU hasn't improved a lot from the Core 2 days (QX6800 = 3000MIPS, i7-3770K 3800MIPS). If my hunch is correct, it would be getting about the same as my dedicated 8350 used to.

    Yeah... He's on Steam very often. And when I see Him, he's almost always playing Europa Universalis IV.
    And He hasn't responded to me since while still on vacation, either. I am seriously getting worried about him. :(

    Visited a career fair at my university today. Visited the micron booth, not because I want to work there, but because they had bare ssd's, drams, and those giant wafers. I got a 16gb flash drive free that does 15mb/s read write. Mentioned WCG, and he surprisingly didn't seem to know about it. Felt like I was spreading gospel but I told him to check out WCG.
